origami herons

origami artist joseph wu made some life size origami herons for the summer live festival last weekend in stanley park. he was looking for someone to photograph the installation process, so i swung by and snapped away. his work is extremely impressive. i've previously briefly blogged about him here.
unfortunately it was raining. a lot.
as it usually goes, it stopped raining after i left.

origami herons were put up at brockton oval in stanley park

adding finishing touches to the herons

there was a total of 11 origami herons

volunteers helped out by attaching the strings to the birds
